Coffee, anyone?

Looking at this you could be forgiven for thinking that you were beside a Paris Cafe. Instead, we have just walked up to Sloane Square, and found Cafe Oriel. This very french style Bistro serves excellent coffee (and for that matter, citron presse). Being where it is, you have an eclectic mix of people and you can use it for celebrity spotting if you are so inclined(I'm not).

However, if you want to feel like a real Londoner, make the trek there one Sunday morning and sit with a coffee and cake, reading your paper and watching the world go by.

Wow, I had to take a second look at who's blog I was on! I love Sloane Square and this must look very strange with the red (brick?) buildings around.

On a separate, personal note, thank you for what you did. I am truly grateful.

That is a nice shot of a lovely cafe!
Been catching up on the pictures and I loved the 'Egyptian trail' wonderful!

Hi Ham, sure this reminds me of Eric's cafe chair photo even before reading your caption...

Great shot - it fits into the theme day I want to propose (but don't quite know how to get the word out: shots of your town that look like, or refer to, somewhere else!

Thank you! I have put this on my "to do" list.

Great place. Nice salads, too, should you want to stay for lunch. No, I am not being paid for advertising. Alas.

Hey all, and especially Ham of course...

Thanks for this amazing blog. I just found it, and it's absolutely satisfying! I have a WEE bit of an obssession with all things English, and this blog will give me loads of lovely photos to look at and pretend I'm there in London too. hehe (I'm Canadian, by the way.)

Ham, I linked this post in particular to my Coffee Creations blog. Thanks so much for posting it. :)It's lovely.
